Shower Regrouting has been servicing Perth since 1986, which means that our experience in the field of leaking shower repairs, our grout replacement methods and the quality workmanship of our tile regrouting have stood the test of time.
We have been satisfying customers and agents for longer!
We are a family owned and operated business, we do not franchise or have sub-contractors.
This means that we are accountable from the start of the enquiry to the very end when the task has been completed.
WHY IS MY SHOWER LEAKING?
A leaking shower can be caused by defective taps or plumbing. However the problems that commonly arise are failed waterproofing membrane, deteriorated grout and seal; this is genuinely due to general structural movement, ageing or failure to maintain the area correcty.
AND NOT RE-TILE?
Is your shower leaking through the walls? Is your grout looking dull, mouldy, cracked or is it missing in areas?
Are you looking to sell or lease your property and wanting to maximize your return by improving the look of your bathroom?
Tiles in good condition are not porous but the grout is. In most cases the shower can be fixed by replacing the grout and waterproof the shower recess itself without removing the tiles. Indeed, the original membrane under the tiles may either be non existent, have failed, or deteriorated, but if the shower is sealed accordingly, no water will be allowed to reach the underlying membrane.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CARE FOR MY SHOWER?
Clean your shower regularly only using low PH neutral products.
Do not use harsh caustic cleaning product! This will inevitably overtime cause the grout "pores" to open and become vulnerable to bacteria; the grout joint will then weaken and desintegrate.
Avoid stagnant water and dry area after each use with a cloth or a squigy.
Make sure your bathroom is well ventilated.
Avoid using bar soap as it leaves build up on tile and grout ideal for bacteria growth.
HOW LONG BEFORE I CAN USE THE SHOWER?
A standard shower re-grout usually takes up to 4h to complete depending on the width and hardness of the grout joints to remove.
We also ask to have the shower kept dry, out of action 24h prior and 48h after completion to ensure the new grout has bonded sufficiently in a moisture-free tile joint area.
